BOBBY HARRISON on Tate Reeves: “Poke him and he will poke you back harder”

BOBBY HARRISON: Reeves won’t back off from beliefs

Tate Reeves was 29 years old when he was elected to the statewide office of treasurer.

From almost the onset of his political tenure, it was clear that the young, brash Republican would not shy away from a fight, whether against more veteran politicians as he quickly climbed from novice, no-name candidate to a statewide officeholder, or to taking on then-House Speaker Billy McCoy, D-Rienzi, over several issues during his two terms as treasurer.

Reeves, now in his first term as lieutenant governor, has not changed that much as he has literally matured before the state’s political eyes. He may be older and wiser, but Reeves, who will turn 40 later this year, still doesn’t run from a fight.

Poke him, and he will poke you back harder.
